Lastly, we have Gwen joining the game. She comes with the Hallowed keyword. When a unit with Hallowed dies, for the rest of the game, your first attacking unit will gain +1/_0 for the round. This effect last the entire game, and stacks with more dead Hallowed cards.

Path of Champions

There's new content for the Path of Champions, which is the game's PVE content. There's a new region to explore in Shurima. Additionally, there's going to be four new champions for Path of Champions, being Kai'Sa, Evelynn, Gwen and Taliyah. There will also be six new relics available as well.

Return of Labs

The lab returns once more! This is where players can test out some crazy and experimental game modes. Here are the 3 modes being tested out in Labs this go around.

  • Ultra Rapid Draw: This high-speed evolution of our very first Lab was also our most popular of all time outside of Lab of Legends. Heimerdinger’s Temporal Transducer has gone haywire, and everything is looking a little quicker than usual! Receive a hand of random, heavily-discounted cards each round and spend your 4 mana wisely to outwit your opponent.
  • Welcome to the Jungle: Our first-ever constructed Lab drops you and your opponent into the wilds of the Rift! Each player has a Vulnerable, Immobile jungle monster on their board. Slay your opponent's monster to receive a powerful buff spell and spawn a new, even more powerful monster in its place. Instead of receiving random cards, you’ll be challenged to brew the perfect deck… or, if you’d rather get right into the action, you can choose quickplay and queue up with one of Heimerdinger’s own concoctions!
  • United Front (PVE): Runeterra's first co-op Lab returns and pits you and an ally against one of several powerful Noxian Generals controlled by the AI. Invite a friend or match with someone new, select a Champion to create a premade deck, and combine your forces to repel the invasion... but watch out, those Noxians have a few tricks up their sleeves!

There are some bundles that will be available for purchase as well. There's a couple of pass bundles that will include the Event pass. Additionally, there's a bundle called the Starlight Forces bundle. This bundle contains the five star guardian skins as well as the cards for those champions.

On top of that, there is going to be a deck bundle called Hallowed Hunters. This is a deck that revolves around Gwen, and it also includes the Star Guardian Gwen skin as well.

Miscellaneous and Bug Fixes

  • Moving forward, Path of Champions will be its own mode independent from Labs.
  • Fixed an issue where Spell Slinger’s targeting text does not update when damage is modified
  • Fixed an issue where the countdown number wasn’t highlighted in yellow for some landmarks
  • Fixed an issue where some champions’ card text did not update to reflect damage buffs
  • Fixed an issue where playing cards with Thermogenic Beam in hand would display Thermogenic Beam in the Action Log
